WE NEED BAKERS! Please consider showing off your culinary skills for us! Cookies, brownies and breads are always a big hit! Try to avoid frosting and anything that requires refrigeration (it can get hot under the tent). The baked goods need to be individually bagged and labeled with the ingredients. Also needed: cases of bottled water and fruits (apples and bananas work best because they are easy to walk with). Please visit or call the library to sign up. Drop off will be on Thursday September 7th at the library from 5-6:00 or either day under the tent. Please contact us if these days/times don’t work and we will work something out. Thanks again for your continued support!
